I have an upcoming onsite with 4 separate people over 4 hours. Should I expect to have a technical question in each of the 4 interviews?

    With 4, Interviews, it sounds like you will be a part of an event. In general, for SDE2, you should have three coding interview and one design interview. There should be a criss cross of leadership principles for each interview.

    @uLms63, what do you mean one "bahavuoral" with the manager - There is no such "exclusive" LP interview for SDEs.

      He means a blitz.

      Yep - Blitz, you sit in a room (possibly 3 more candidates in 3 other rooms), four interviewers rotate around to meet each one of you. they get together at the end of the shuffle and capture feedback and discuss the outcome. From a candidate standpoint, interview blitz or normal interview - shouldnt make a difference. It can be harder on the interviewers :(

      Blitzes are usually half day, so 9a-1p or 1p - 5p

      I have seen 50 minute interviews with 10 minute breaks in between so 4 hours.

      If you are being fed lunch between interviews then it is not a blitz :)

    Assuming SDE. No, only 3 of the 4. The other one will be bahavuoral with the manager.

      Ulms is wrong. If it's only 4, then it's an event loop. All 4 will be technical. If it's a 5 person loop, 4 tech, one behavioral.
